i think this thread should be kept right near the top of board for the rest of time!!!
if ever a post could give people hope its gotta be this one!!!!!!!!!
i know that when we went for ec if we had only got 2 eggs we would of thought that was the end and probably all but given up
but this post proves that life can conquer against even the worst odds
traci your emby is a shining light, a beacon in the gloom that is fertility tmt
i think everyone that starts tmt and comes on here for support should be told your story so they know then that how every bad things might appear THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE
well done you
richard charlie
